No, you cannot connect an Ethernet cable to HDMI. This is because Ethernet is a data connection, and HDMI is a display connection.

Many laptops have a display out connection that you can use to connect to a TV. The older ones used VGA, and the newer ones use HDMI. Most HDTV's have both of these connections.
